Thirsty?

Do you ever wake up in the night just parched? Thirsty enough to drag yourself out of bed and to the kitchen just to sage that thirst?

Or in the summer, when the sun is so hot you can see the waves it makes bouncing off the asphalt . . . and your chasing children, first one direction and then another. Sweat is pouring down your face, your back, your legs. All you want is a cold bottle of water or an ice cold coke and a seat to enjoy it in.

Do you ever stop and think about the thousands of people on this planet who don’t have the luxury of clean water? When they get thirsty, they have to decide if it’s worth taking the chance of getting REALLY sick just to not be thirsty. Or they must cart water from miles away – so that each drop becomes rationed. Do you wash with it? Drink it? Clean with it?

For those that are unfortunate, they end up with one of many diseases like cholera. Cholera that makes you so sick that you literally lose gallons of fluid each day . . . and how do they replace it when there source for hydration is exactly what made them sick in the first place?

Thank God there are men and women working to help these people. One of these organizations is Project 320 Charity:Water.
